For those of us used to bombing up and down 5th Street to avoid the stoplights and foot traffic of 4th Street SW, be prepared to hold your horses, bucko. Northbound lanes will be closed from March 26th to 28th, 2018, and 5A Street SW will be closed March 29th to 30th in both directions, affecting your ability to avoid the “no left turn” off northbound 5th onto Royal Avenue during peak afternoon traffic. Water line and fire hydrant work are the given reasons.
To make your life even more amusing, The Red Mile, 17th Ave SW, will be completely closed at Western, between 5th Street and College Lane, from April until done, with a break for Stampede. And yeah, that mess from last year closing 17th along the stretch with the Shell station and the Ship will return until at least the end of June.
Don’t let all this construction wind you up though, drop into the Perk for a nice, cool Mocha Shake and shake it off. Yes, we went there… 😉
